President Don Hagopian called the meeting to order at 7:05 pm, with 24 people present. Again Rocky’s donated their banquet room for our meeting.

Don Hagopian announced some important dates (listed below) then invited everyone to the Annual Holiday Party at Rocky’s December 16 @6:30pm.  It is a joint venture between Rocky’s, American Airports and Whiteman Airport Association.
Don Hagopian then introduced the manager at WHP, John Frymyer, who updated us on what was happening.
The following is a list of things discussed.
1. EAA and Optimists and WHP will hold their annual Air Fair May 21, 2005
2. Fuel was stolen out of a few airplanes.  We think we have the culprit.  The matter has been turned over to the FBI and County Police.
3. County Assessor’s Office is on the airport Weekly looking for N-Numbers.
4. Rotating was out twice and was fixed.  We are pushing for a new beacon.
5. Wind Tee almost done
6. Pacoima Parade is December 11 at 9:00 am
k7. y’s, American Airports and the Whiteman Airport Association will host the annual Holiday Party together.  Instead of having 3 separate Parties.  Dec 16 at 6:30
John Frymyer then took a few questions from the audience.

Dave Kolstad, Treasurer, gave his report. Checking account $1548 after some expenses, such as the lunch for 99’s, 2005 hangar stickers, and our new banners.

Shellie Hagopian, Secretary, gave her report.  174 members and 117 on auxiliary mailing list.

Bill Fenimore, Vice-President, reported that the new 2005 hangar stickers are in and available.  Also, the 99’s repainted the runway markings on Saturday, October 16 and the WAA provided volunteers with a very nice lunch and lots of hot coffee and we received a very nice Thank You Note from them.  It is great to be affiliated with another aviation group.

Jeanne Fenimore, our Parliamentarian, handled the election of new Officers for 2005.  No one new volunteered so the existing Board agreed to run again and was voted in for another year.
